6/17/2024 - Make My Monday#228 Summer Outdoor Fun - Just a Note Crafting with You

We are back here at Make My Monday for another fun challenge and this week we are making Outdoor Fun! For the challenge, I created a card for all the artist inside us with an easel image from Crafting with You bundle! When the weather is nice, I see lots of people with their drawing pads or Easel at the Botanic Garden, capturing natural’s beauty. This is also a quick and easy fun fold, where you create a card base hot dog style (long way) and then cut it at 2.75 inches and use that piece as a panel for the fun fold! I paired this with the DSP. I hope you enjoyed this card and be sure to join us at the challenge.

6/13/24 - Cardz 4 Galz #227 Summer Fun - Attention Shoppers

Another fun Thursday challenge at Cardz 4 Galz and this week we are making Summer Fun card! Everyone’s definition of *FUN* is a little bit different and for me, it’s shopping!! In the Midwest, summer time is a great time to go to outdoor shopping malls, in the winter, not so much. I use the Attention Shopper bundle for this create a shopping cart card. I die cut out all the fun elements and colored it in with Stampin’ Blends. The cart is cut out with Foil Sheet and then I put all these fun elements inside the cart. I hope you enjoyed this card I am sharing today and be sure to share with us, what is YOUR summer fun!

6/12/24 - The Paper Players #693 - Stay Tuned for Important Message,

Happy Hump Day! I am sharing a card that I made for a group swap with Fun n’ Crafty ladies and this is what I came up with. I used a non-traditional pattern for this retro TV card from a bundle called Tune-In. This is one of the first bundle that I want out of the catalog. I don’t even know why but I was just really drown to it. I guess it’s because we used to have a same retro TV at home. The colors I used is mostly from The Paper Player challenge and added Early Espresso. Thanks for stopping by!

Hi crafters – welcome back to another challenge here at Atlantic Hearts Sketch and this week I have a beautiful floral card for you. The new Wildly Flowering DSP totally reminds me of the paper we had last year pairing it up with Cheerful Daisy and I also added the butterfly accents on it. I used the re-inkers with aqua painter for a softer looks on the butterfly. Details of the flowers and leaves are actually cut out using the DSP, cute eh?! Hope this give you an inspiration to join us at the challenge.

6/5/24 - The Male Room #187 Twine/Ribbon - Cheers to All Your Years

Welcome back to another monthly challenge here at The Male Room and this month we are making cards with Twine/Ribbon. I think it’s always a bit harder to use ribbon/twine on a masculine card but I think as a background accents always work. I used it to tug behind a main focal point. This card as you can see doesn’t used any stamp, the piece was from a DSP die cut. The DSP piece is 3” x 1 ¼” (or you can do 3” x 1 ½”) and the White piece is 3 ¼” x 4 ½” (or 3 ¼” x 5”) this is a great way to show case your Designer Series Paper! Thanks for stopping by and please join us at the challenge.
